How to Pay For an International Internship

How to Pay For an International Internship

General, News By April 12, 2018 Tags: , , , , No Comments

BookScouter is happy to announce a partnership with Kabibo Internships.   Generally, on BookScouter we don’t like to promote high priced services or programs, given that BookScouter is a free service based around making extra money rather than spending it, but we have worked with Kabibo Internships to create a really exciting opportunity that we feel is a good fit for you.

With Kabibo’s new program (Kabibo Go) there is now an opportunity for students to participate in international internships without having to pay thousands of dollars.  We believe these internships would be definitely worth it in the long run but for many, they are still financially impossible.  If learning abroad has always been a dream of yours and you are not afraid to put in some extra work to get there, check out the article below.

Interning abroad can be a daunting task. There are so many companies out there offering international internships, but which do you choose? Well, don’t let it overwhelm you! The truth is, no matter what you choose, you are going to benefit from it. But hey, it can’t hurt to save some money and make the biggest impact while doing it, can it?

Kabibo is a small company with just a few countries to choose from, but by interning through them, both you and others will benefit hugely! They offer internships in Chile, Indonesia, Germany, and the Philippines. Current internships include International Business Consulting, Software Development, Marketing/Design/Business Development, Management, Small Business Management, Museum Guide, and Au Pair. Or you can request a custom internship! Companies range from small start-ups to large, well-established organizations with exciting industries like coffee production, language, tourism, and technology. Here’s what you need to know about Kabibo –

 

1 – They want your finances to stay in check – Money is a big deal, and paid internships can be hard to come by. That’s why Kabibo has initiated a new program called Kabibo GO! in which they will seek out scholarships for you to cover your program cost. This saves YOU both TIME and MONEY! There are literally thousands of scholarships out there just waiting to be claimed! Kabibo will continue to search for you until your program cost is covered, and they’ve even got the difference if scholarships don’t cover your full cost. They just ask for a little feedback in return, because of your opinion matters!

 

2 – Your internship means help for those in need – Kabibo is not just about internships. They really care! When the company was founded, their goals were to send interns abroad AND help those in need by supporting organizations that deliver help, healing, and support internationally. They donate a percentage of profits to international development work and hold regular awareness and fundraising events to further support these organizations. By interning through Kabibo, you will help feed a child in need in a third-world country, you will help pull young women out of sex trafficking, you will make a difference!

 

3 – Kabibo cares about your career goals – If you take a look at their website, you may notice that there is not a long list of internships available for each country. That’s because they care about your career goals. They don’t want to force you into an internship that is just an ok fit for you, they want you to gain the experience that will propel you into your ideal career. Simply apply for the “Custom Internship”, where you can request your ideal internship, and they will do their best to find it for you!

 

4 – They want you to have an amazing time! – The Kabibo team is made up of travelers who have participated in multiple intern, study, and work-abroad programs. They understand the need for support, because it can mean the difference between an amazing and a terrible experience. Kabibo has local representatives in all destinations to make sure you have a great and safe time! Your representative will pick you up and drop you off at the airport, will assure you have housing that is both comfortable and convenient, will accompany you to your internship on the first day, and will be available to you at all times.

 

The team at Kabibo knows the positive impact that living and working abroad can have on you, your education, and your career. Its transformative power is something they want you to experience too! Don’t wait too long, because there are just a few positions available each semester. Click on the link below to check it out today!
